The Phantom Coach
It happened 20 years ago in 1887. I was walking along a narrow, crunchy gravel road and became lost. It began to snow heavily. I was cold and desperate and was stumbling towards a faint light in the distance. It was a small snow topped cottage. I was given delicious food, drink and warm shelter. The owner of the house was strange, like a crazy poor guy in a filthy, smelly ally. He told me a story about something that had happened that very night three years earlier…
He told me that a mail coach had been travelling in a ferocious snow storm when the horses had slipped over like they had been it with a bullet in the middle of a battle. The two drivers and four men inside had died painfully. “Weird,” I muttered to myself. I looked outside; the weather looked as though it had cleared so I decided to set off.
It was still cold and I felt scared and frightened.
I remembered about what the man had said and felt a spine chilling sensation crawl up my neck. Time vanished as I languished in the cold dark street as the night became darker. I was stymied and didn’t know where to go. I was highly surprised when I saw the silhouette of the mail coach approaching me. I asked if I could get a ride, the men nodded without bothering to look at me. I could very faintly see the outline of three big, bulky men. I tried to make a conversation but none of the people listened.
I realised that there was something wrong and tried to get out, but I couldn’t…..No….this can’t be… NO!!!! I then clearly heard a horrifying scream and felt as I was flying through the air. I passed out…..
I woke up at home two longs days later. I had been found in a huge ferocious snowdrift exactly where the coach had crashed three years earlier. Nothing else was found there…
Well there you go, that is my story.
